Take action to prioritize the health of children and families in the upcoming reconciliation bill
The Build Back Better Act has the potential to affect millions of children and families across the country. But competing priorities leave many of these provisions vulnerable to cuts. The spending bill right now includes funding for universal pre-K, child care for working families, and extensions of the Child Tax Credit. 

One of the most important pieces of the spending bill is an insurance lifeline for over two million Americans who lack health coverage

This would close the coverage gap in the 12 states that have not expanded Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act (ACA), including a number of states within our National Network of community health centers. The bill will accomplish this through the use of premium tax credits and a federal Medicaid program that will be administered in non-expansion states.

People of color are disproportionately impacted by this coverage gap, so this measure would be an effective policy move toward greater health equity in the United States. 

Call your senators and representatives and tell them to close the coverage gap in the 12 states that have not expanded Medicaid. Take action to prioritize the health of children and families in the upcoming reconciliation bill. 

Thank you for raising your voice for children and families during this critical time.
